Academy du vin - Completion certificate wine bottles for wine courses
Beacon Communications k.k.
Development of the Academy du vin’s wine course completion certificates for its students. Academy du vin is the top wine school in Japan. Our assignment was to come up with design to depict the school brand as well as the special feel of the course completion to encourage the students have pride in themselves to begin a career as a wine sommelier.
In order to depict the students’ fulfillment of completing the course, the excitement and the specialness of receiving the certificate and the honorable feeling, we decided to create the completion certificates in a wine bottle form, instead of ordinary paper certificates. The completion certificates of different courses from level Ⅰ to Ⅲ mainly uses motifs of numbers representing each course level, while the completion certificate of all courses uses the motif of the symbolic crown.
Students were very impressed with the impactful and previously unseen design of the completion certificate in a wine bottle form. This raised their motivation of starting a career as a sommelier and enhanced the brand of Academy du vin.
